Lathai-a Marlin


I am an Acupuncture Physician, (AP) who graduated with a Master’s Degree from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. After graduation, I traveled to China and completed an externship at Nanjing University where I had the opportunity to study under Nanjing’s leading Doctors of Chinese Medicine. One of my many unforgettable learning experiences was treating babies and children with Pediatric Tuina, a form of Chinese massage.

In addition to acupuncture, I am a Chinese Herbalist.  I write prescriptions and compound herbal formulas based on your specific diagnosis and unique health needs.  I am also a certified Sound healer. For those who may not like needles or in addition to acupuncture treatments, I utilize Acutonics Tuning Forks that create specific vibrations to initiate a deep healing response in the body.    I am also an acute detox specialist certified in NADA 5 needle protocol for acute detox, trauma and PTSD. Additionally, I am trained in Kiiko Matsumoto’s techniques that have proven to be very successful in my practice treating adrenal fatigue, thyroid imbalances, and Liver/Gallbladder imbalances. Other modalities include, but are not limited to, cupping and tuina.

I am passionate about assisting you on your journey to restore your health and well-being. My goal is to help you feel like you again. I believe in treating the root cause of your health imbalances, not just treat the symptoms. I am a believer in creating a treatment plan that is specific to your needs and goals. In addition to a treatment plan, I will teach you how to maintain your health and well-being through independent self-care. I am a loving and nurturing physician and I care a great deal about each and every person who walks through my door. I am here to listen to you on all levels both personally and diagnostically. I understands how to meet you where you at, and I will be there with you every step of the way.
